Yesterday’s hike to Johnston & Panther Lake was enjoyed by all participants – one of whom sent photos & a note:

“We had an excellent hike with Julian today. A smaller group of us hiked up to a lookout near Johnston Lake for some pictures, and a couple of people suggested that I send you the photo of everyone who made the uphill trek, so here it is. The sun came out and we got a lovely view of Castlecrag Mtn, although Mt Albert Edward remained hidden, and then another view of the mountains from a different angle across Panther Lake on the way back, which I have also attached. Almost perfect hiking weather (in other words, we didn’t get rained on!) and a great guide. Thanks again to your group for organizing such a great event, I’ll be sure to come back to try some other hikes!”

Thanks to Alison for the feedback!

The nature talk on Owls & Whiskey Jacks by Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society was also greatly enjoyed by dozens of people who attended the whole talk or just dropped in.

Educational Outreach Worker Reg Westcott and intern Kim of MARS brought Brinley the Great Horned Owl & chatted with visitors for two hours. Adventurers Colin & Julie Angus & their son were among those who dropped in to see the talk!
